The Oasis at Goose Creek, SC
Acts 28:30 – 31 And for the space of two years, Paul was living in the house of which he had the use, and had talk with all those who went in to see him. (31) Preaching the kingdom of God and teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ without fear, and no orders were given that he was not to do so.
In two days I will be flying to Goose Creek, South Carolina, to spend some time with my son and daughter-in-law at their House Church, “Oasis.” During this six-day vacation with family, I know I will be totally immersed in God’s kingdom. To them, church is something that comprises one’s total being on a minute-to-minute basis. The concept of House Church also implies that church is not a building instead, it is about people who gather in close Christian relationship with each other; with Christ as its Head Pastor.
To say I’m excited to visit them would be an understatement as, I most likely will have a Godly “tune-up”, while visiting there. It is my son, who introduced me to the powerful Nooma videos by Rob Bell, John Piper’s sermons, Paul Tripp’s writings and E-sword. And, it is my daughter-in-law, with her great capacity for love and understanding that makes one immediately feel accepted.
I’ll be taking pictures and blogging during my stay so, please check back as I detail some of the goings on at Oasis.
Father, bless your church in all its forms, shapes and sizes. Each is a yearning expression of children seeking a closer relationship with You. Amen
